On April 28 in Atlanta, Georgia, President Trump will be the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan to address the NRA’s Leadership Forum. Trump received the NRA’s endorsement for President in 2016, and Trump has promised to reduce the burden of regulation on firearms owners. In January, Associate Deputy Director of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Ronald Turk outlined a slew of regulatory reforms that might be undertaken in a white paper titled Options to Reduce or Modify Firearms Regulations.
The Executive Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris Cox, announced Trump’s pending appearance in a tweet:
